Description: The Larks Head
Knot is one of the most frequently used
decorative knots in Macrame. Another name
for this decorative knot is the Cow
This variation is used frequently as a mounting
knot: To attach one cord to another, or onto a
ring, dowel or purse handle.
The Reverse Larks Head is
also described on this page, below the basic
instructions. It's a very important
variation, so please practice it, too.
It's used when you need to turn the knot
around so it resembles a Double Half
I've also included instructions for a unique
application of this important knot. It's called
the Nestled Mount.
I found it in a book written in 1899, so it's a
vintage knot, and is not very well known.
When you are finished here, practice the Vertical
Larks Head knot, too.
